How many times did she marry for money?
About one husband, she was honest:
"Herbert took away my will to work. With his kindness and generosity, he almost annihilated my drive. I have always been the kind of woman who could never be satisfied by money — only excitement and achievement."
There's no joke being made there, unlike the remarks about being a "housekeeper" or how many husbands she's had other than her own.
In any case, I was never a fan of her, but she's part of the list of this year's dead celebrities nonetheless. If you cut from that list everyone you don't consider a great person, it gets a lot shorter. Let me see...
Yeah, I get down to ten. Oh, The one you posted hasn't been added yet. I've never heard of him, so it's still ten when edited.
